A handsome old brick farmhouse in the truly lovely peaceful village of Tincleton which is close to Dorchester and set amongst some wonderful countryside. The property is an archetypal farmhouse, solidly built and with an appealing symmetry with a centred front door which opens into the ENTRANCE HALL with the KITCHEN set to one side and the DINING ROOM on the other. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM is a generous light room with large sash windows. It has been beautifully fitted with handsome cream cabinets offsetting the tiled floor, extensive storage cupboards and with a large centre island. French doors, within the breakfast area, beautifully frame the views of the surrounding open countryside providing easy access to a large terrace, perfect for easy entertaining. On a practical note there is also a useful UTILITY ROOM/CLOAKROOM.
The DINING ROOM is an elegant room with high ceilings, and cream painted timber panelling to the walls. The SITTING ROOM is an equally engaging room, light-filled and of generous size, it has French doors inviting views over the garden and the land beyond. A wood-burning stove in the fireplace is a heartening focal point to this room and formality is reflected with the picture rails and part-panelled walls. A door at one end leads back to the kitchen so that guests can be guided back to the kitchen for informal dining or to the dining room for more formal occasions.
From the entrance hall, the staircase rises to the FIRST FLOOR where there are FOUR DOUBLE BEDROOMS and TWO BATHROOMS. Each of the 4 bedrooms are almost all of equal size and most notable are the double aspect windows in three of them. The MASTER BEDROOM has an ENSUITE SHOWER ROOM with shower, WC and washbasin and the FAMILY BATHROOM has a large pretty pedestal bath with mixer taps, 2 pedestal washbasins, double shower and towel rail BEDROOM 3 also has an inbuilt vanity unit with washbasin.
A pretty picket gate in the low wall across the front of the property opens onto a small paved path which leads to the front door and is lined with heather, bordered either side by lawn and small ornamental trees. A small metal gate to one side opens to the side area of the garden and on the other, there is an access which leads to a covered porch and the quaint stable door that opens to the kitchen.
The garden and land extends to approximately 1 ACRE with the immediate garden, mainly laid to lawn, wrapping around two sides of the property. A post and rail fence with a gate encloses the area of PADDOCK which has some lovely specimen trees. A gravelled path leads to double gates which open out onto the lane and there are two parking spaces in front of it.
Set against the backdrop of Hardy's Egdon Heath, the village of Tincleton is situated on the River Frome, approx. 5 miles east of Dorchester. The name actually derives from "Tin la Ton", or "farm in a valley" and is redolent of the geographic position of this village, nestling as it does in a river valley and lying at the heart of a thriving farming community. Dorchester is just 7 miles distance with its London/Waterloo railway station: a bustling county town with hospitals, choice of both private/state sector schools, wide choice of shopping including the new Brewery Square development, health centre, a cinema and restaurants centred around a fountain square.
From our offices in High West Street, follow the road down the high street and continue going over the small hump back bridge to the large roundabout (A35/Kingston Mauward roundabout). Take the second exit signed to Tincleton and follow this road for over 4 miles. After passing the village sign, you will reach a small green on your left with a signpost. Take the turning right marked Woodford and Moreton and after a few hundred yards, turn left opposite Watercress Cottage: the property will be found on the left hand side.
